Helen Thomas Returns to the Media

helen-thomasWhy, at age 90, and after a devastating departure from her last job, is Helen Thomas returning to the battlefield of punditry?  “It’s my life, and I want to die with my boots on,” the liberal firebrand said. “There’s never a day without news, and I want to be on top of it. I covered 10 presidents, and I don’t want to stop.”

The Washington Post spoke to Thomas on Friday, a day after she emerged from seven months of unwilling retirement with a new column in the weekly Falls Church News-Press. While she initially agreed to speak only about her new gig, Thomas was the one to bring up the circumstances that led to her downfall – her videotaped comments that Jews should “get….out of Palestine.” She told us her words were “distorted”: “I didn’t tell the Zionists to get out of Israel, I told them to get out of Palestine, and to stop mistreating the Palestinians. It’s very depraved and inhumane.” She added: “I’m not anti-Semitic.”

Since leaving her Hearst column and seat in the White House briefing room, she’s been “reading newspapers, going out to dinner, eating, drinking, being merry.”

  1. She is utterly clueless. Her original comment mentioned Jews and now she tries to pretend as if she said Zionists. I guess that in her mind there’s no difference. The only one that’s distorting her comment is herself.

  2. If someone wants to make a couple of dollars this purim, make a Helen Thomas mask with a witch’s hat(with a matching grager). It will sell like hotcakes or hamantashin.
    Never saw such a zeresh like her. Homan Horasha would have been proud.Achashvairosh would have taken her for a wife, she wouldn’t be single.

  3. Look at her. She is as cruel as she is ugly. Yemash”v let her go to her homeland and wrap her face up in a burqua and save us all from seeing her…

  4. HELEN -NOBODY IN THE USA REALLY CARES ANYMORE WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY. YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED AS A HYPOCRITE AND YES AS ANTI SEMITIC.PLEASE JUST LEAVE YOU WERE NOT MISSED.ALTHOUGH I HEAR AL JAZEERA MAYBE LOOKING FOR A NINTY YEAR OLD BIASED REPORTER !!

  5. AS MUCH AS WE DISLIKE HER- WE CANNOT MAKE FUN OF HER LOOKS AS G-D CREATED HER.JUST LIKE THE STORY WITH THE MAN THAT SAID TO ANOTHER MY, WHAT AN UGLY PERSON YOU ARE TO WHICH HE REPLIED GO COMPLAIN TO MY CREATOR!

  6. To no. 4: one of the classic answers to why people who don’t seem to deserve so live long is that they get their reward in this world…don’t get bent out of shape…
